For Your Ears Only / On Air

David Alpern

For Your Ears Only/On Air is a unique, fair and far-ranging weekend news program that veteran journalist/broadcaster David Alpern has produced and hosted since 1982. In addition to guests from across the right-left spectrum on critical policy and political issues, For Your Ears Only presents news and views on a broad range of other important and engaging topics: health, science, technology, the economy, food, arts and entertainment.

Launched as Newsweek On Air, reflecting content from that magazine where Alpern was a senior editor, the program became independent and non-profit in 2010 as For Your Ears Only/On Air -- later a project of the 501(c)3 New York Foundation for the Arts -- with support from the National Arts Club in New York, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the gatewave.org radio reading service for people with disabilities, AKAM Associates real estate management, listener donations and a small family trust.

Each week, For Your Ears Only is carried by scores of commercial and non-commercial stations coast-to-coast (Washington, San Francisco, St. Louis, Raleigh, Boston, New Haven, etc.), and by the Pentagon's American Forces Radio Network for U.S. military personnel in 178 other nations.

Online the show is available at http://feeds.feedburner.com/foryourearsonlyonair, and generally ranks among the 200 Top Podcasts at iTunes/News & Politics: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/foryourearsonly/id73329823 It also is heard at http://stitcher.com/s/player.php?fid=4892 and posts selected segments to a YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/foryourearsonlyonair?feature=g-all-u.


VOICES & VIPs

Since 1982, Alpern's show has broadcast more than 5,000 interviews with public officials, corporate leaders, scientists, medical experts, authors and celebrities across a broad ideological spectrum. Among them: Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, Katharine Hepburn, Katharine Graham, Bill Gates, former CIA Directors William Colby and Stansfield Turner, LBJ biographer Robert Caro, historian Annette Gordon-Reed, novelist E.L. Doctorow, actress Anna Deavere Smith.

Recent guests continue that broad reach: from the Hoover Institution's Iran expert Abbas Milani and Larry Diamond, a Bush Administration adviser in Baghdad, to former Pentagon official Lawrence Korb at the Center for American Progress; from the Rev. Jim Wallis, best-selling evangelical author, to journalist/screenwriter Mark Boal, who won two Oscars for "The Hurt Locker" based on his first-hand experience in Iraq.


WHAT THEY SAY

"Consistently delivers ...quality and topicality while adding a bit of balance to our mostly "Conservative" sound," says Steve Nicholl, Program Director, Radioactive Talk Radio 570 KLIF/Dallas.: "It's difficult to find quality, thought provoking programming that is really timely, particularly if your station is news/event driven like 570 KLIF."

"Fits our News Channel perfectly, as it hits our military audience worldwide with important highlights and analysis that they otherwise wouldn't hear," writes Jef Reilly, director of the Pentagon's American Forces Radio Network Worldwide. "Heard in 177 countries around the globe and every U.S. ship at sea, it's important programs like [yours] that keep our troops informed."
